To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, pursuant to his answer to the hon. Member for Hazel Grove of 21 February, what are the reasons for the cost differences between the preferred route (modified brown) on the proposed A6 Disley-High Lane bypass and the brown route.

The preferred route is 4 km shorter than the original brown route. It avoids the need for extensive work in the Newtown area and a diversion of the railway at Gowhole.

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport whether British Coal registered a formal objection to the construction of the proposed A6 Disley-High Lane bypass along the lines of route of the purple, blue and orange proposals.
